FIRST:  FIRST:  WE HAVE HAD 2 DISTRACTION BURGLARIES IN OLD WINDSOR.  I UNDERSTAND THERE HAVE BEEN SEVERAL OTHERS IN NEIGHBOURING POLICE AREAS, USING THE OLD WATERBOARD / BOILER  / WATER PRESSURE MO.
 
26/3  Tuesday 4.15 p.m. Old Windsor X 2.  DISTRACTION BURGLARY.  1.  The aggrieved was cold called by two men, who rang her doorbell.  They said a neighbour’s boiler had burst causing their house to flood.  They were visiting the neighbours, to check if their water pressure was ok.  She was asked to run water into buckets and cups with one man, while the other went into the bathroom’ to do the same.. He also went to a neighbour’s flat saying the same.  A cheque book was stolen from one and jewellery from the other.  In the first house the man offered to get e skip as there was a lot of items in the house.  He said it would cost £1,000.  The aggrieved said she did not have that amount and after about 45 minutes, both men left.  They drove off at speed in a silver car.  They are described as 1.  Young man, white, late 20s, he looked possibly European. 5’10’’, regular build, dark brown hair, wearing a long sleeved blue jumper and dark coloured trousers.  2nd man, in his 50s, large with a big stomach, grey coloured hair, brushed back wearing a long sleeve dark jumper, dark trousers with a south of England local accent.
 
 
We have some very professional Dippers (Pick Pockets) very active in Maidenhead at the moment.  As we mount operations against them, they will be displaced, to other town centres.  Please be on your guard, make sure your handbags are worn across the body, under any coat.  Shoulder beach type bags, which are very fashionable at the moment are really vulnerable, particularly if you push them behind your arm to the back !
 
Be aware of who is around you at all times - no-one should come into your personal space - use shop window reflections, for example.  Walk tall, remain alert and confident, looking around you generally.  Dippers look for poor posture, people who are distracted and ‘victims’.
